Resident Assistants are full time students who serve as peer mentors, organize events and enforce policy. They help maintain a conducive study and living environment for approximately 30-35 students. They are knowledgeable about the college, its resources and personnel, and are available to counsel students on their residence floor. RAs are students carefully selected for their leadership and communication skills. They receive training in problem-solving and emergency response.
